Kenya Honeymoon Safari

Inspirational safari honeymoon to Kenya

Kenya offers the quintessential honeymoon safari experience.  With its extraordinary views, it is not only utterly romantic, but it offers intense wildlife encounters that you and your partner will treasure forever. This trip combines 2 of Kenya’s best parks, the Amboseli and the Maasai Mara.   First, Ol Donyo Lodge, in 275, 000 acres of private land, bordering Chyulu Hills National Park and owned by 4000 Maasai.  From your private plunge pool at your suite, you will look out over the rolling plains towards Mount Kilimanjaro, and if you choose to, you can even sleep out under a canopy of stars on a start bed and listen to the hyenas and lions moving around.  Journey with the guides to their village for an authentic cultural experience, or join others on game drives, walking safaris or the cycling and horseriding excursions.  

It is then a light aircraft flight to Mara Plains Camp, within a private conservancy, bordering the national reserve, you can expect the lowest vehicle density in the Maasai Mara region, while also having the highest concentration of big cats anywhere in Africa.  From July to Oct, the great wildebeest migration arrives in the Mara and adds even more drama to an eco-system already teeming with wildlife.  The luxury tents at Mara Plains are elegant yet understated, with touches of Africa as well as the early colonial explorers.  Enjoy day and night game drives here and why not end off on a high with a hot air balloon safari.
